Today I pray for people who feel like failures. So many people walk around, day to day, feeling as if they just can’t seem to get life right. Although they may have had some successes, they focus on the areas of struggle. Failure is not defined by falling or making mistakes. Instead, it is defined by failing to step out and take chances, failing to move on after a stumble, failing to believe that success is possible. Even still, there is nothing impossible with God. His strength is even perfected in our weaknesses.
Therefore, I pray for those who feel like failures. I pray that You will help them to first find Your grace, hope and love. Your Word says that “where sin abounds, grace abounds much more” (Romans 5:20). Therefore, may your grace abound in their situations. Grant them hope. Most of all, Father, help them to know your love. Your love covers a multitude of sins. I pray that they will see themselves as You do. You say that they are fearfully and wonderfully made. I pray that you send the people, resources, and opportunities that they need to move past such destructive feelings so that they can live life and have it more abundantly. We ask these things in Jesus. Amen
